The review session in the afternoon is your chance to talk about how your day or week has been and to discuss how we can make things better for you.

*In your first week at the Croft you go on a half-hour 'safety walk' with some of the staff to make sure that you're safe when going on activities outside the unit. Then you can choose an activity you like doing, such as art or cooking. After that you can join the Recreation Group on Thursdays for activities such as swimming and bowling. And in your final week at the Croft, you get to choose the Thursday Group activity.

After the review session you have lots of free time before bedtime. Click on the 'Activities at the Croft' tab to find out more about all the things you can do.
